Rapid classification of specular and diffuse reflection from image velocities
(Elsevier BV, 2011-09)
We propose a method for rapidly classifying surface reflectance directly from the output of spatiotemporal filters applied to an image sequence of rotating objects. Using image data from only a single frame, we compute ...
Parasite stress and pathogen avoidance relate to distinct dimensions of political ideology across 30 nations
(National Academy of Sciences, 2016)
People who are more avoidant of pathogens are more politically conservative, as are nations with greater parasite stress. In the current research, we test two prominent hypotheses that have been proposed as explanations ...
Effect of contiguity and figure-ground organization on the area rule of lightness
(Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology, 2014)
In a simple two-dimensional (2D) display composed of two uniform surfaces with different luminances, the lightness of the darker surface varies as a function of its relative area while its luminance is held constant ...
Longitudinal analyses of expressive language development reveal two distinct language profiles among young children with autism spectrum disorders
(Springer New York LLC, 2014)
Although children with Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) show significant variation in language skills, research on what type(s) of language profiles they demonstrate has been limited. Using growth-curve analyses, we ...
Cultural Bases for Self-Evaluation: Seeing Oneself Positively in Different Cultural Contexts
(SAGE Publications Inc.SAGE, 2014)
Several theories propose that self-esteem, or positive self-regard, results from fulfilling the value priorities of one's surrounding culture. Yet, surprisingly little evidence exists for this assertion, and theories differ ...
Attention modulates neuronal correlates of interhemispheric integration and global motion perception
(Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology Inc., 2014)
In early retinotopic areas of the human visual system, information from the left and right visual hemifields (VHFs) is processed contralaterally in two hemispheres. Despite this segregation, we have the perceptual experience ...
Adolescent risk-taking as a function of prenatal cocaine exposure and biological sex
(Elsevier Inc., 2014)
Objective: To examine the effects of prenatal cocaine exposure and biological sex on adolescent risk-taking while controlling for early environmental risk. Methods: Adolescents (n. = 114, mean age. = 16) were grouped ...
Characterization of a novel zebrafish (Danio rerio) gene, wdr81, associated with cerebellar ataxia, mental retardation and dysequilibrium syndrome (CAMRQ)
(BioMed Central Ltd., 2015)
Background: WDR81 (WD repeat-containing protein 81) is associated with cerebellar ataxia, mental retardation and disequilibrium syndrome (CAMRQ2, [MIM 610185]). Human and mouse studies suggest that it might be a gene of ...
Object rigidity and reflectivity identification based on motion analysis
Rigidity and reflectivity are important properties of objects, identifying these properties is a fundamental problem for many computer vision applications like motion and tracking. In this paper, we extend our previous ...
Stepping back: reflections on a pedagogical demonstration of reflective abstraction
(S. Karger AG, 2015)
